Guestbook comments from the manager




REVIEW TITLE: Our New Favorite Spot on 30A!

REVIEW: Beautiful, quiet neighborhood! Quick walk or bike ride to the beach, area shops, and eateries. It was evident that the owners took great pride in renovating this home. It is immaculate and tastefully decorated with a mid-century modern flair. We enjoyed eating out in the screened porch and relaxing on the porch swing. Thank you for providing the beach wagon! The only suggestion I have would be to add an ironing board. Also, the tiny washer and dryer are located in an odd spot. Be prepared to do several small loads - especially if you have towels to wash. Too bad that half bath couldn't double as the laundry area. It would make containing the wet towels and swimsuits a lot less tricky. The Benchmark app was super handy, and we appreciated all of the emails and reminders. Another memorable 30A vacation in the books!

Our family loved staying at Dolphin Dance! What a beautiful property! You absolutely thought of every last detail from the kitchen to beds, linens, bathroom, living room, play area and to the beautiful decor! The location to the pool and beach was such an easy walk or bike ride and the subdivision felt very family friendly. We had so much fun biking into Seaside and exploring up to Watercolor and Grayton! We are already planning our return trip! Thank you for a perfect family vacation!!

Reviewer Comments:

We arrived after dark, unpacked and opened a bottle of wine. Both the living room and the screened porch are great places to relax, and the luxurious Cal-king bed did not disappoint! The next day we were ready for action, and walking the beautiful and quiet white sand beach suited us just fine. We visited the nearby Publix for provisions and enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen - it was easy to feel right at home. We also took the first of several bike rides, a really nice way to see the communities along 30A! When our daughter, son-in-law,, and five year old granddaughter arrived, we were ready to explore the area’s parks and beaches! Our daughter exclaimed, “This is like a luxury hotel,” so getting them out the door took a little coaxing😉. Once we did, we particularly enjoyed Grayson Beach State Park, walking along the dunes at Deer Lake State Park, and exploring the historical structures and nature trails at Camp Helen State Park. Though we particularly enjoyed buying fresh fish to grill “at home,” we did love the Seagrove Village Market Cafe. Too bad the community pools aren’t heated - they were a bit too cold for swimming while we were there. All in all, a great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review of Dolphin Dance! This home truly is a gem - for all of the reasons you mentioned! This beauty is tucked inside the wonderfully quaint neighborhood of Grove By The Sea - where you can ride your bikes, walk with your loved ones or just sit, relax and listen to the birds singing! Just across from the beautiful community pool (which Mother Nature will have heated for us soon) and an easy walk across 30A to the beach you are never far from the water! Today is a great day to experience the cozy comfort of Dolphin Dance!

Reviewer Comments:

We go to seagrove every year for fall break. It's become our favorite time of year. We usually try a different house everytime we go, b/c there are so many to choose from. We look at location, size of home and comfort. We hit the jackpot this time! We loved the décor, ALL the little extras, these owners thought of everything!! We loved the porch, the openness of the first floor and the master bedroom/bathroom was perfect. We will definitely come back to this house, it truly made our stay even better!

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review - we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Dolphin Dance! This is such a great property - the neighborhood is charming, the pool is right across the street and the beach is a short walk across 30A! Not only is the location great but the property is truly a gem - the owners have been very thoughtful in the design as well as the amenities provided. They want you to have a 5 star experience and they work very hard to ensure your comfort and convenience! We do hope you will choose Dolphin Dance for your next visit to 30A - you owe it to yourself to have this experience!

This house was spectacular! Above and beyond on cleanliness! All of the extras the owners put into it were much appreciated! So much attention to detail to make our stay here unbelievably comfortable and enjoyable. I loved the openness of the main floor and the privacy of the beautiful master upstairs.

The beds were awesome and the showers were great.

Such a beautiful cozy home! We will definitely be back to this house! No complaints! Thank you for sharing!
